Our Pre-School Room for children aged 3 years and over offers stimulating and exciting activities to stretch skills and imagination and will give your child a head start for when they begin school.
Our staff treat the children as individuals, offering praise and resssurace throught the session to aid their progression and development. Children are encourage take ownership of their learning under the watchful eye of their Keyworker.
High standards are achieved by implementing through the Early Years Foundation Phase. Activities offered for the children in the Pre School room are linked to the current nursey topic and planned in line with the 7 Areas of Learning
- Personal and Social Development, Well-being and Cultural Diversity
- Language, Literacy and Communication skills
- Mathematical Development
- Welsh Language Development
- Knowledge and Understanding of the World
- Physical Development
- Creative Development.
A ratio of 1 member of staff to every 8 children aged 3-8 years is observed at all times.
We request that parents/ carers provide their child with a diary/notebook each time they attend nursery.
Your childs Keyworker will complete the diary daily and include information about mealtimes, sleep times and activities your child has taken part in along with any details about their day. The diary system is not designed to replace daily chit chat between parents and nursery staff, but to build links between home and nursey and to help pass on messages.
Another way we share information between home and nursery is through our SeeSaw App. Each child has an online SeeSaw account, where staff members post pictures and videos of your childs day, along with individual messages to parents/carers. Parents/carers can make the choice to share this account with other family members who can also view what is being posted by the nursery staff.
Playworks Early Days Nursery has a Facebook page where we regularly post about future events and share other important information.
Newsletters are produced throughout the year and are shared with parents/carers via your childs SeeSaw account. Papercopies of the newsletters are also availabe in the Reception area of the nursery.
